Real Weddings – Emily & Tom
Today in our Real Weddings blog we bring you pictures and snippets from the beautiful wedding of Emily and Tom. Emily and Tom were married on 17 December 2016 at the Barker College Chapel in Sydney with a reception afterwards at Jonah’s Restaurant in Whale Beach. Emily chose a stunning Fara Sposa bridal gown with guipure lace bodice and mocha underlay with full tulle skirt. It was very special in store to find Emily her dress, with her mum having bought her wedding gown at our boutique back in 1989. It is always a joy to serve a second generation of brides! We recently asked Emily a few questions about her wedding and experiences.
Peter Trends: How did you meet your husband?
Emily: We met in high school at the Barker College school formal.
Peter Trends: How did your husband propose to you?
Emily: It was a complete surprise! He led me to believe we were going away with his family to their beach house at Pearl Beach. All our families were in on the plan! When we arrived he said he didn’t have the key (his parents did – or so he led me to believe) so then we went on a walk overlooking the Heads and Pittwater and he proposed! Followed by lunch at Pearls. Then the next day he surprised me again with both our families travelling up for lunch.
Peter Trends: What was your favourite part of your wedding day?
Emily: First walking into the church and the emotion that hit me. We also had a lovely drive from Hornsby to Whale Beach which was really nice as it was just the two of us.
How did you find the experience of shopping for a wedding gown?
Emily: Difficult before I went to Peter Trends! I had a wonderful experience at Peter Trends and being able to share that with my mum (who bought her wedding dress from Peter Trends back in 1989!)
Peter Trends: What did you love about your wedding gown?
Emily: How unique it was with the mocha bodice!
Peter Trends: Any words of wisdom for future brides?
Emily: Enjoy the moment. On the day itself you need to let everything go and what will be will be and you may have some funny and unexpected stories as a result. It truly was the happiest and hottest of days!
